The Princess of Wales wants to raise her children in the same style as Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, according to a royal book.
The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown, by Katie Nicholl, claims that Kate Middleton admires the parenting techniques used by the Wessexes, who share children Lady Louise Windsor, 18, and James, Viscount Severn, 12.
Despite their parents being royals, the children, the youngest grandchildren of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, grew up without any HRH titles and out of the public eye.
The Princess of Wales reportedly wants to raise her children the way Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex raised their children
Kate Middleton reportedly admires the style with which the couple raised James, Viscount Severn, 14, and Lady Louise Windsor, 18, who both grew up without HRH titles and out of the public eye.
Nicholl claimed Kate, 40, admired how Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex managed to give their children a peaceful upbringing despite being at the heart of the royal family.
During the pandemic, Sophie Wessex, 57, said she wanted her children to grow up with a strong work ethic.
And after graduating from school in June this year, Lady Louise Windsor showed that she had complied with her mother’s wishes when it was revealed that she had taken a summer job at a garden center.
While the garden center’s name and location have not been disclosed, the Queen’s granddaughter is believed to have earned £6.83 an hour in her role.
After receiving her A Level results in August, Buckingham Palace confirmed that the 18-year-old would be attending the University of St Andrews, following in the footsteps of her cousin, Prince William, 40. While the Prince of Wales was studying geography, Louise will read English.
It is not yet decided whether Louise will become a working royal after graduation.

At a meeting with benefactors outside the Sandringham Estate last week, Kate and William gave an inside look at how they raise their brood and told the public they wanted to keep things ‘as normal as possible’ for Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte , seven, and Prince Louis, four.
Royal author Nicholl wrote that while the Prince and Princess of Wales are raising their children in a sober style, his future for Prince George of Wales is fairly set in stone as heir apparent.
While Princess Charlotte of Wales, seven, may have more choice about her role in the family, she remains the ‘reserve’, so she should keep that in mind if she’s pursuing a different career. Meanwhile, Prince Louis, four, could choose to become a non-working royal.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte joined Lady Louise and Viscount Severn at the state funeral and disposition of Her Majesty The Queen, who died peacefully on September 8 at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle in Balmoral Castle.
Described as the monarch’s ‘favorite’ grandchild, Louise shared a passion for all things horse with both her grandmother and late grandfather Prince Philip.
Lady Louise looked emotional as she took her place by her grandmother’s coffin.
She wore a traditional black dress for the event, which she paired as an accessory with the necklace, which appeared to be made of silver-tone metal.

After Prince George and Princess Charlotte attended Her Majesty’s funeral at Westminster Abbey in London, they traveled with their mother Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, to St George’s Chapel in Windsor for a solemn service, where the Queen was buried.
Many royal fans expected Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, to play no part in the Committal Service, but they were pictured walking into the chapel behind Her Majesty’s coffin.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Wales had stood front row at Westminster Abbey singing hymns while standing with their parents.
Providing a reassuring presence everywhere, the Princess of Wales held her daughter’s hand tightly when the family arrived at Westminster Abbey – and offered her eldest son a pat on the knee as the family sat for the service.
